Suchitra Krishnamoorthi claims her daughter Kaveri placed her on a dating site because she was bored

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi

Kaveri Kapur, the daughter of actor Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and director Shekhar Kapur, will make her Bollywood debut shortly. In 2006, Suchitra and Shekhar divorced.

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi married Shekhar Kapur in 1997 and separated in 2006. Kaveri Kapur, the actor and filmmaker’s daughter, is a singer who will shortly make her acting debut in Hindi films. Kaveri stays at home with her mother. In a recent interview, Suchitra said that as a single mom, she was not severe with her daughter and was the ‘antithesis’ of her parents. Suchitra further said that Kaveri compelled her to use a dating app.

As a single mom, Suchitra stated she was “extremely careful” of not doing “anything frivolous.” She said that she was a “very conservative” person in several parts of her life, but that she had to “overcome so much self-conditioning” to keep a promise to her daughter. Her daughter Kaveri, who is set to star in her debut Hindi film alongside late actor Amrish Puri’s grandson Vardhan Puri, created Suchitra’s profile on a dating app. Suchitra said she was compelled to go on dates, which she disliked. She also said that she ended up friend-zoning them after a few dates. She hopes to write about her experiences in a book or a narrative someday.

“Some time ago, my daughter Kaveri placed me on a dating site. That’s what I promised her, so I said all right. I became bored and informed her, bachha (baby), that this was not my scene. She registered my identity and created my profile, then insisted on my going on dates… “I told her that I did it for your sake, but now I can’t do it and I’m OK on my own,” Suchitra said in an interview with Pinkvilla. She stated that after originally posting her picture, she modified it after receiving some ‘strange’ remarks. She described the situation as “so much pressure.”

Suchitra also said that following her divorce from ex-husband Shekhar, she had one year-long romance. Nobody knows about it, she adds.

Suchitra was also quizzed about her relationship with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. They collaborated in the 1994 film Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. “No, not really,” she answered when asked whether they were still in contact. Our children went to the same school when they were younger. For a while in London, we were neighbors. But not quite.”

When asked about Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, she said that it was her “primary recollection” in public. She also said that the late actor Irrfan Khan, who died in 2020, used to hang around on the set of the film since his wife Sutapa Sikdar worked as the costume designer. On set, she described him as a “brooding, extremely sorrowful looking person.”
